Cidade Alta, Luanda

3.3
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Angola
Lovers of old Portuguese architecture will enjoy visiting Cidade Alta, considered one of the most beautiful quarters in the capital. Walk around the streets adorned with elegant buildings, and soak in the colonial architecture. Note, however, that taking photos in the area is forbidden, given the proximity of the presidential residence and the heavy military security. Visit the local church and museum to find out more about the capital's history. See Cidade Alta and all Luanda has to offer by arranging your trip with our Luanda online holiday maker .

  • A paradise!! A place preserved, a beautiful small town and magic, did not enter a car in the city, there is no pavement, is in the ground, there is no lighting on the street (posts), only in shops and houses, an amazing trade. 4/4 tours and Burger through the dunes and lagoons, the most amazing sunset I've ever seen.

  • Rustic and acoustic restaurant on the main street has a nice atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff and a sea bass with divine Brown, with 3 side dishes to choose. Not to be missed. Note 10

Where to stay in Luanda

Luanda holds the title as one of the most expensive cities in the world, so even if you search for budget-friendly accommodations, bear in mind that it will cost a fair amount. Most recommend the neighborhood of Maculusso for three-, four-, and five-star hotels, but you can also see what Murtala Mohammed Avenue near Luanda Bay has to offer. All lodgings in the center make excellent starting points for exploring the rest of Luanda--just remember to confine your sightseeing to the city's safer colonial part.
